I am a rather huge, although recent, fan of hip hop music. While most people correlate their reasons for being interested in hip hop to be their childhoods, the lyrics, or just being plain catchy, I attribute my interest in the genre (like most of my interests in life) to anime. Now, when I ask the question in the title, I don’t mean anime that … Continue reading Friday Funsies: Why Does Hip Hop Pair Perfectly With Anime?
The real horror is realizing I was too busy/lazy to make daily posts. So today, to celebrate the 31st of October, I will be rambling about things I find scary from a bunch of stuff I shove into my face and ears. Anime Series: Attack On Titan OKAY, HEAR ME OUT BEFORE YA’LL START DISMISSING ME AS A NORMIE. Attack on Titan isn’t “scary” to … Continue reading Spooktober Finale: What Scares Me?
[Lazy repost, I’m watching Weathering With You tomorrow so I thought hey, let’s just post a review of a different romantic anime movie you recently saw. Expect the review for Weathering With You by Makoto Shinkai next week!] Well, I guess it’s Chuuni week in this blog, because after watching how terrible chuunis can be in “When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace”, I decided to remind … Continue reading Chuunibyou: Take on Me Movie Review
[Another Remaster, nice] Hi, I am the Luminous Mongoose, and I cure my depression by listening to depressing music. Hey, I’m honest, it works for me. Whenever I feel down, listening to downer music helps me relax and tune my inner angst to something more productive, like making a blog post about things that make me cry so strangers on the internet know my emotional … Continue reading Friday Sad Hours: My Top 5 “I-Want-To-Drown-In-My-Own-Tears” Music from Anime
Yes, I am doing this. I stumbled upon this fantastic mashup of Eminem’s “When You’re Gone” and “Dango Daikazoku”, and upon listening, I realized just how eerily SIMILAR the themes of Clannad and Eminem’s song are. I suggest giving it a listen before reading on. I will be tackling this as not a 1:1 comparison with Eminem’s life, but with his life as it is … Continue reading Eminem’s “When I’m Gone” Is Basically Clannad: After Story
This is just a super quick fluff post before the winter weekly recap tomorrow telling you to watch A-1 flex their animation budget with this hyper fluid,energetic, and smoothly rotoscoped dance sequence with an equally catchy song. Why the 10 Hour Version, you ask? Because why not, I can’t stop watching anyway. The silly, energetic and yet expertly choreographed dance popping off to a song … Continue reading I Can’t Stop Watching Fujiwara Dance!
Let me be clear. I don’t play League of Legends, and I only passively listen to K-Pop when my sister listens to it. I have no idea what the context behind this is. With that said, oh my god, this music video by K/DA is really, really good if you are even remotely fascinated by animation or striking visuals. You could have no idea what … Continue reading K/DA’s Animated Music Video Is Fire!
For October 31, I celebrated by going to the theaters to watch some movies, and the most thematically appropriate movie I watched that day was Halloween (2018). How does it hold up to the original 1978 classic? Why didn’t they just call it Halloween II? That’s what we’ll be talking about in this review. There will be minor spoilers. Continue reading Halloween (2018) Movie Review – Just Call It Halloween II, Damn It
Zombieland Saga’s 3rd episode actually slows down the pace to give us some much needed development and character focus. This episode has made me set on watching this series the whole way through. Despite the frantic pace of the previous two episodes, this episode wisely put on the brakes a little bit and giving our idols some time to breathe (metaphorically speaking, since they’re dead). … Continue reading Zombieland Saga Ep. 3 – Actual Idol Stuff Happens (And Fails)
Episode 2 is somehow even MORE fast-paced than the already hyper Episode 1, but is it still palatable or just too much? We start the episode off with Manager Okabe (I am not calling him anything else) once again refusing to exposition the girls. We see Ai and Junko being incredibly uncomfortable with their situation, and so try to escape, and it goes about as … Continue reading Zombieland Saga Ep. 2 – Zombiez Wit’ Attitudes
